Abstract

This paper presents the development of PEC-based electrical
load schedule software for residential electrical services
design. All the sources that will be used for the computation
and data will be based on PEC. The testing of the project will
be carried out in accordance with PEC as well as other
approved codes. Calculating tools to help you understand
the process of accurately sizing a commercial electrical panel
based on proposed loads. To emphasize, accurate load sizing
is best performed by an electrical engineer, which is
reviewed by the building department in your jurisdiction.
The software was developed using Visual Basic (VB. net)
programming language. Vb.net, or Visual Basic, is a
development of the BASIC programming language. It is
intended to be used in conjunction with an Integrated
Development Environment (IDE). Prior to the development
of IDEs, programming languages like BASIC relied
significantly on the DOS command-line. A load schedule for
different operating scenarios will show when peak
consumption occurs and provide an opportunity to find out
if all the high loads must operate at this time. It serves as a
valuable calculation tool for electrical engineers, students,
and technicians by providing a faster, easier, and more
accurate means of carrying out some basic calculations, such
as determination of the size of wire; conduit sizes; circuit
breaker ratings; the main feeder size of wires; main circuit
breaker ratings; voltage drop; and riser diagram using
Philippine Electrical Code Tables. The results of these
calculations help the designer to make vital decisions such as
cable sizing and nominal ratings of protective devices
required by each circuit and by the entire installation, in line
with appropriate standards and regulations.
